I thought the Prickly City cartoon (which I follow religiously) was really good today (on several levels). As a technical guy, I’m always telling my users to “reboot”; which in my defense solves the problem 90% of the time.

If I’m ever on life support and flat-line… don’t panic. Unplug me… wait a few seconds… and plug me back in. If that doesn’t work… then PANIC!

GOP - Trump - LogoSo I’m watching a news program featuring a bunch of Trump supporters and one in particular stood out in my mind. The gentleman identified himself as gay (though not trans-gendered) and complimented Trump on not bothering with the issue of where he peed and was concentrating on more important issues.

This gentleman helped me clarify several things in my mind…

One: New Republican Voters
Trump and his supporters keep bragging about the record number of new voters he will bring to the Republican Party. This (I suspect) is the quality of the new voter. And if this is the new inclusive Republican Party, I’ll have no part in it. In Trumps defense, this is exactly what the establishment GOP has been pushing for years. But when politicians (and shysters) brag about “growing the party” or creating a “big tent” they are simply using codes words for “compromising conservative principles” as the price to be paid for winning, and power, and money which are their real goals. That’s a trade-off I’m never going to be interested in. If you become your enemy to win the war, have you really won the war? Of course not.

Two: The Election is Already Settled
The 2016 election is already lost. Trump (by his nature) and his followers assure it. There will be no game unless he’s the nominee. They will support nobody else… So Hillary wins and the GOP most likely looses the Senate (if not the House also). It’s a done deal.

In all fairness, I’m no better. I’ll support Trump under no circumstances. BUT also to be fair I was never going to support Bush, or Christie, or Kasich for the same reason as I won’t support Trump. None are conservatives and I’ve vowed never to support another non-conservative for office. Romney was the last. The GOP label is not enough anymore; nor is throwing me a VP bone. I’ve abandoned the GOP and my sole hope for this election cycle is that it tears the GOP apart and creates one of two new parties. I hope the same for the Democrats in the near future.

Insane - StampThree: National Insanity
Western civilization is in the throws of committing suicide by reason of insanity. How long that will take I have no idea; but the process is now at full speed. The new Trump supporter is aghast that we’re having the debate over restrooms. So am I… but for a different reason. He’s aghast because it is so un-important and obvious that we should be inclusive and let people be who they are or identify as. I’m aghast because it is so obvious that men (biologically speaking) should not be allowed in any female facility. That we’re even debating such a fundamental fact is proof of irreversible societal insanity.

Yes; there are some very important issues out there like the debt, immigration, terror… so why aren’t we addressing them? Because each has a moral component that we repeatedly prove we lack… We continually spend what our children and grandchildren must repay. We allow those who would do us harm free access across our borders, not to mention seek to fundamentally change our nation by allowing in those will will never assimilate (this being the price for votes and cheap labor). We have such self-loathing that we espouse moral equivalence with our terrorist enemies. And… We grant men (all men) free access to the private facilities of our mothers, sisters, wives, and daughters.

On issue after issue, we demonstrate decay. And don’t even get me started on rationality… We are insane with NO sign or hope of recovery.

I don't understand the question...

I don’t understand the question…

Remember this idiot? Rachel Dolezal was the white girl who “identified” as black. She lied about it in order to run an NAACP chapter somewhere (Spokane, Washington). I know many of us had hoped this nut’s 15 minutes of fame were up… but it seems she intends to squeeze a few more seconds out of society.

She recently did an interview on “Today” (a vapid network morning show) and explained she’s ready to come out and talk about… herself and write a book and generally make us revisit the train-wreck that is her life and mental state.

A lot of people it seems have reached out to Rachel over the past year because they don’t quite fit in either. They too are “somehow caught between boundary lines of race or culture or ethnicity, and so [it’s] this larger issue of you don’t fit into one box and if you don’t stay there your whole life being identified from birth, as who you are”. This, of course, would only confirm our suspensions that there are many, many, similar nuts out there… or at least nut enablers.

I guess the quote from Rachel that really caught my attention was…

“Race is such a contentious issue because of the painful history of racism… so I think it’s really important to really think through some of those kind of topics and questions people have… What is race? Is there one human race, or is there… you know? Why do we still want to go back to that world view of separate races?”

From a rational person this is actually a pretty insightful, philosophical statement; a step away from the abyss of racial identity and division. But coming from the likes of Rachel Dolezal (and the NAACP, and the left) it’s absurd. The central ideal behind Rachel’s entire life, career, and mental dementia is a “world view of separate races”. It is how Rachel Dolezal made her living in Spokane, Washington. It is how the NAACP makes millions of dollars every year. And it is how the left maintains much of its power.

I would hope that the final seconds quickly tick off this 15 minutes of fame, but why? I’m sure there another one, just like this one, skulking around the corner. It’s a never ending cycle of leftist, politically correct bullshit we are forced to watch over and over again as this nation is fundamentally changed.

Society is doomed; not because Rachel Dolezal identified as black and lied about it and got away with it for so long. We’re doomed because of the percentage of the population who entertain the idea that she is black simply because she “identifies” as such. Rationality is utterly lost for too large a segment of the population for the whole to survive. Nuts and perverts have always existed (and always will). Societal embrace of nuts and perverts? That’s the real problem.

The Daffy Duck Parable
I often reference pop culture (and literature, and history) in conversation and writing; which is bad when you reach my age because nobody gets the references anymore. For me personally it’s less of a shock because my references were so obscure to begin with. I use it in my everyday speech too. You ought to see my nieces roll their eyes when I use one my nuggets of wisdom.

One of my common sayings and obscure references has always been “And me saying that I’m a fiddler crab doesn’t make me one.”

So let me explain this reference. It comes from a Warner Bros. Bugs Bunny cartoon featuring Bugs Bunny, Elmer Fudd, and Daffy Duck. It is hunting season and Elmer is trying to shoot Daffy, who convinces him its rabbit season so Elmer switches to Bugs, and vice versa and so on. The gag is Elmer is completely confused and Daffy always ends up getting shot no matter what happens.

Towards the end of the cartoon, Daffy loses it and exclaims, “Shoot me again. I enjoy it. I love the smell of burnt feathers… and gunpowder… and cordite… I’m an elk! Shoot me! Go on… It’s elk season! I’m a fiddler crab! Why don’t you shoot me? It’s fiddler crab season!” And there is the reference. 🙂

If this were a parable, Daffy Duck is me, Elmer Fudd is society with its slings are arrows (a shotgun; and another reference), and Bugs Bunny is the left convincing Elmer (society) of whatever nut-ball notion fits his agenda.

Qualifications to Work for NAACP

Rachel Dolezal "FEELS" black and that's all that matters in a society that has discarded truth.

Rachel Dolezal “FEELS” black and that’s all that matters in a society that that has discarded truth.

There a woman in Spokane Washington, Rachel Dolezal, who is the president of the NAACP chapter there. She isn’t black or mixed race or so claim her white biological parents.

Now the NAACP has stated (and I agree) that being black is not a requirement to be a member or participant or even president of that particular organization. No. Those requirements would be close to: 1) Having a victim mentality 2) Pushing racism incessantly & 3) Drinking the leftist Cool-aid (another reference).

Over Qualified
Under those criteria… there is little doubt in my mind that Rachel was immanently qualified for her position as chapter president for the NAACP. A perfect example of her “qualification” would be what brought attention to this woman in the first place. That being the hate mail (found in a PO Box) sent to Rachel Dolezal in February (2015). Upon investigation, it seems the mail in question had not been processed by the Post Office… which means the only way it was delivered into her mailbox was from the recipient side of the mail box… which means the person who put it there had a key. (I’ll only connect the dots so far…)

Rachel’s simply made the decision to publicly and legally (admissions forms) claim to be “black”; which seems to have helped her financially. Rachael publicly claimed a man, a black man, who was not her biological father to be her father (maybe she used the word dad).

Complicated Questions

I don't understand the question...

I don’t understand the question…

So let me ask you a question or two? “Is your father an African American man?” “Are you an African American?”

Exactly how complicated and confusing are these questions? For Rachel Dolezal they were extremely complexing. After identifying a black man in a photo as her “dad”, she was asked these two questions. She wouldn’t answer them, became befuddled and walked away from the reporter.

Feeling Black
I can already see her defense (probably crafted by a crack-pot PR firm). She identified the black man in the picture as her “dad” because he was such a great mentor and supporter. She has always felt that he was like a daddy to her, even more so than her hateful white dad. She didn’t answer the other two questions (which have more narrow objective definitions), so… she never lied. This really should be called the “depends on what the definition of ‘is’ is defense” (another reference). Eventually, Rachel will simply claim that she has always “felt” like a black woman. She will then hope her leftist credentials carry the day for her with the NAACP and MSM (Main Stream Media). I wouldn’t be surprised if it worked.

And in today’s society it should work. Today, it’s all about FEELINGS. What one feels defines ones reality; and that reality is just as good as anybody else’s. In a nutshell our society is embracing and celebrating the subjective in all things social and political. It rejects truth (which it calls false) as backward and evil. How far this societal evolution (and revolution) will go is unpredictable and scary.

Left Behind
Concept - Left BehindWe who can’t adjust to this subjective world (and don’t even want to) are harangued as backward, narrow, and bigoted. Some of us consider it as a badge of honor; some as even a cross we gladly bear (another reference).

In trying to explain the world from our perspective, let me ask you, what is 2+2? (I don’t think society has reached this point of irrationality yet) If…you answered 4; I would the like to follow-up and ask why YOU are so narrow minded? Why can’t it be 3 or 5 OR 2 if I really, really FEEL that is the answer? Who are YOU to tell me I’m wrong and try to force upon me your narrow, outdated, definition of 2+2!? And who are you to deny my a job (as a bridge builder or architect) based on what I really feel to be the right answer?

Update Say to Feel
I’ve got to update my old Daffy Duck reference from “And me saying that I’m a fiddler crab doesn’t make me one” to “And me feeling like I’m a fiddler crab…”

Without regard to my degree of “feeling” that I’m a fiddler crab… alas, I am not one. Not even if I scuttle sideways and eat rotting crap on a beach. But I’m just as much a fiddler crab as Rachel Dolezal is a black (or mixed race) woman… as Bruce Jenner (or Catelyn if you prefer) is a woman… and as Elizabeth Warren is of American Indian heritage… Again the key word in all of this is NOT (zero, nata, zilch); and the fact that society doesn’t realize that is proof of just how far down the road to oblivion we have traveled.

United States - E Pluribus UnumPat Buchanan penned an editorial a few days ago (8/4/14) which basically said that if Obama implements his plan to grant amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants it will be the end of the republic. He is partially right. In fact the only point he is wrong on is that he believes there is still any hope of stopping it. There’s not. The nation lost any hope of survival decades ago. What we see today with Obama and the lefts infusion of illegal immigrants into society is simply the acceleration of the decline.

E pluribus unum (found on the seal of the United States) is Latin for “Out of many, one” and represents the concept of immigrants coming to this nation and melting into our society, becoming distinctly American; if not the first generation, then the next. It is regarded as one of our finest qualities of a nation and also considered (by many, myself included) necessary for the continuation of the Republic.

E pluribus unum has been lost and not lost just recently but has been on the decline for half a century. Since 1965, the purpose of immigration has increasingly been to bring in more and more people who do not melt into our society and culture; but to bring in people who will… believe a certain way, vote a certain way, a distinctly non-American way.

E pluribus unum was slowly and methodically replaced by (I’m guessing on the Latin) E pluribus pluribus, “out of many many”. Immigrants today have no interest in assimilating into American culture and why should they? Those who brought them here had no intention of them doing so. Their purpose is to fundamentally change this nation by diluting the one (the unum) culture and society with something different. Obama under his administration has simply taken that concept and put it on steroids… In coming months he will put it on crack.

Obama - Desecrate FlagThe left holds American society, and the Constitution it was built upon with disdain. Destroying that, remaking that, fundamentally changing that, has been their goal from day one; though you would be hard pressed to get them to admit it; even today. This is why you judge them by their actions (fruits if you will) and not their words. They believe the leftist utopia cannot be reached without first doing away with the antiquated ideas of dead European males; and to their credit they’re right about that. The two (leftism and the founding principles) are mutually exclusive.

And the left has won. The goal has not yet been realized but we’re close; and the path to that goal is unalterable. The best we constitutionalists (those holding to the founding principles) could hope for is fragmentation (Balkanization) of the nation from which we could carve out a small nation of our own and return to the great experiment started by the founders. Unfortunately, even that dire scenario of little hope is unlikely.

One of the left’s attacks on us constitutionalists is that our objections are based on race. Some of the Kool-Aid drinkers actually believe this lie. But it’s not.

This is a melting pot thing; an understanding and desiring to be American thing. We’re not just talking about the desire to escape poverty in most cases and violence in some; but the desire to embrace what has made America great. Unlike early immigrants and even immigrants early in the last century, that desire is completely missing. The left knows that, wants that, and promotes that through “diversity” and “multiculturalism”. Ant THAT is why the republic is doomed.

Cartoon - Simpsons - Lisa - LoserSo I’m day two into a stomach virus. I hope this is over today; I don’t think I can take another 10-12 hours of day-time TV without losing my faith in humanity.

Of course I’m talking about what the commercials tell us about the people who watch daytime TV. I assume the commercials are targeted at the chronically unemployed; but what do these advertisements tell us about them. Surprisingly there are fewer personal injury law commercials than I remember. It seems the lawyers have discovered personal injury to be chump change. Now losers sue mostly drug and medical device companies. Who knew all those ADD drugs would be such a male breast generating legal bonanza decades later. Once they get their “structured settlements” (minus attorney’s fees), these guys soon discover they need THEIR money NOW so they can buy monthly car insurance they haven’t had in years; maybe so they can drive themselves to a luxury detox program (not a dinky 12 step program) after which they can use the rest of the THEIR lump some money to get technical training or an online degree. Success in all this should be reflected in a decent credit score (which none of these guys have ever likely experienced before) which they can check for free.

You would think I’d watch a movie or something, but maybe misery loves company. These last two days have been like watching auto accidents careening into whatever was left of America’s common decency… over and over again. We are doomed…

Rome - Fall of Empire[Our society is doomed. And there are certain signs of this: religious, political, and social. Here’s one…]

Brendan Eich (CEO of Mozilla) donated $1,000 in 2008 in support of California’s Proposition 8 and in defense of traditional marriage. It cost him his job. And the fascist largely responsible are contemplating going after others who committed the same offense.

Billionaire Warren Buffet, the “Oracle of Omaha”, has donated $1,200,000,000 (that $1.2 billion) to abortion groups (from 2001-2012). A paltry $289,811,421 went to Planned Parenthood.

This is one of the reasons we can dismiss out of hand the lofty self-aggrandizing claims of Warren Buffet (and Bill Gates and the like) when they say they will give away much of their fortunes. THIS is their definition of that charitable act.

Those who give a pittance to one cause are not even worthy of employment in today’s leftist society; while others who give billions to the right (meaning left) causes are carefully insulated from that information even reaching the public.
